Can Dental Bonding Fix My Chipped Tooth?

Yes! Of course, the health of the tooth and severity of any damages will determine if you are a good candidate for dental bonding.

Dental bonding is a cost effective procedure that involves applying a resin composite (a “tooth colored filling”) to one or more teeth using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. Often used to improve the appearance of teeth from imperfections such as discolorations, irregular shaping, chipping, or abnormal gaps, dental bonding can also be used to protect a portion of a tooth’s root that has been exposed due to gum recession. Bonding is typically a quick and non-invasive procedure.

Teeth that have been treated with dental bonding require the same care as your natural teeth. The key to maintaining a healthy smile and preserving the resin material for as long as possible is all in the upkeep of a good oral hygiene routine. Having routine checkups, brushing at least twice a day, and flossing are great ways to promote oral health.

Is there one little thing about your smile that you wish you could change? Bonding is something you may want to consider. Only an in-person consultation can determine if dental bonding is right for you. Give us a call to schedule a visit!
